This intensive week-long course in London is aimed at curators, exhibition organisers, educators and others working with contemporary art.
The course will critically examine how contemporary curating can best match contemporary art practices, including practices that might be collaborative, or participatory. Since new media including social networking, augmented reality and open source have changed thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update professional knowledge in the field. The local, national and international contexts of curating are rigorously examined.
In 2014 this course ran with curators from Hong Kong, Austria, The Netherlands, Ireland, USA and the UK.
Visits to discuss with curators at organisations included in 2014:
TATE - Convenor (Young People's Programmes).
V&A - Senior Curator, Word and Image Department, and Digital Programmes Manager.
WELLCOME COLLECTION - Exhibitions Curator, Wellcome Collection.
FURTHERFIELD - Co-Director.
The course runs from 22nd-28th February 2015 in Central London.
